Labour Force Survey 2011

The Economics & Statistics Office (ESO) will be conducting the annual Labour Force Survey starting Sunday October 9, 2011.
Trained interviewers will visit randomly selected samples of households in the three Islands over a four-week period to conduct interviews. The ESO once again appeals to the public for its full cooperation with the interviewers, and to provide the necessary information, which will be collected under the Statistics Law (2010 Revision). A sample of the LFS Questionnaire
and the Interviewer’s Manual are available from this site.
Each interviewer will work under an Oath of Secrecy, and all information collected will be kept strictly confidential. No information is ever entered which would allow anyone to be able to link the data with an individual respondent. All interviewers carry a photo identification which should be worn for easy visibility, and respondents are advised to request identification from any interviewer before sharing information.
The information provided for the LFS will be used for estimating the Islands’ 2011 labour force statistics, such as the unemployment rate.
